Permeable or Porous paving enables water to be drained within the paving area. It is a cost effective and industry recognised solution for avoiding the need for planning permission, as all water is efficiently drained within the confines of the paved area.
SUDS, or Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems are a sequence of water management practices and facilities designed to drain surface water in a manner that will provide a more sustainable approach than what has been the conventional practice of routing run-off through a pipe to a watercourse.
SUDS practices and facilities are employed in creating a permeable solution that allows the construction of the area without the need to gain planning permission.
